The Warriors have to make a trade to get out of the luxury tax for next season.
actually- the team going into luxury tax might not be smart (considering they are no where close to being contenders)... but it might be the strongest real statement that joe lacob could make to seperate himself from chris cohan. Even if he just went into luxury tax by 300,000. Yes I'm aware that would cost the team over 10 million net.
Well right now we have over $72,000,000 tied into 9 players for next season, plus the renaming 6 players we have to fill out the roster with, that's going to put us close to $80,000,000, which is well over the tax threshold, and would cost the team nearly 30 million extra, so basically we would have a $110,000,000 payroll.
were gonna unload beans. i see his agent demanding a trade
LMAO- well his agent can demand a trade all he wants. You seriously think the warriors have any objection to trading him?- hes making 9 million a year, and isnt even getting on the floor. His agent might have to demand that trade to other front offices in the league.
We should look to move Biedrins by enticing teams with Barnes. We have to unload at least one bad contract.
thats a scary thing to do. barnes probably has more upside than anybody on the team. (Sorry Klay)- if barnes is in the deal, the trade cant be a salary dump trade... the warriors have to get something solid back.
There's no way we can be paying $110,000,000 while building a state of the art stadium at the same time, financed completely by the Warriors.
I hav a feeling that carl landry will opt out of his contract this summer, and I dont think the remaining 6 guys (if we have that many) will make 8 million.
You can get quality bench players for under 1 million if you know what your doing. Guys like matt barnes, ronny turiaf, josh childress, antawn jamison, cj watson, ronnie brewer, chris wilcox, darko, brandon wright, and chase budinger are all making under 1 million this year, and as the luxury tax gets more harsh... there will be more expierienced role players available at decent prices.
